In their first 14 games of the 2013 season, the Yankees went 8-6.
In their next 10 games, from April 19th through April 28, the Yankees went 7-3. This included 6 wins against the Toronto Blue Jays – who were terrible at the start of the season. (The Jays started out 2013 with a record of 10-21 in their first 31 games.)
Since April 29th, the Yankees record has been 33-32 (including last night’s loss to the Royals).
Sans that one ten game period where New York took advantage of a bad Toronto team, the Yankees have been about a .500-team this season. In fact, their Pythagorean Winning Percentage, to date, is 44-45.
At this rate, it’s looking like the Yankees will probably not win more than 87 games this season. Do you agree?
